The President of the Central African Republic, Faustin Archange Touadera has hailed Rwandan peacekeepers for their contribution in his country’s development.
He made the comment while officiating the Central African National Tree Day.
The Tree Day was celebrated on August 20 in Bangui, the CAR capital city, where a big number of Bangui residents, joined by Rwanda peacekeepers under the United Nations Multidimensional Integrated Stabilization Mission in the Central African Republic (MINUSCA), planted trees at the Gbazabangui reserve forest.
In his speech soon after planting a tree, President Touadera thanked Bangui residents for participating in this event.
The CAR president also thanked Rwanda peacekeepers for their commitment and willingness to contribute in CAR’s development.
“I appreciate also Rwanda peacekeepers’ commitment and willingness while contributing to our country’s development,” said Touadera.
Rwanda peacekeepers (Rwanbatt3) are among the UN peacekeepers that are in CAR for peacekeeping mission.
Some of the Rwanbatt3 tasks include providing security to the president, the office of the president and the presidential palace. They also provide security to key installations in Bangui City.
